During the next several days, I spent a lot of time scouring the internet looking at what people had to say about Michael’s passing. One thing I noticed during this time, was that all of this information was very fragmented. It seemed to me that there should be a good single place for people who cared about Michael and his work to gather and share their love of his art, his memories and to just generally remember him.
With that in mind, contribute to it, and share any memories of Michael you have with others so that everyone who didn’t get the chance to know him, can hear, not just what an incredible artist he was, but also what an AMAZING person he really was.
